Nani, I was checking out your Victorious Vixen page, and I was hoping you could make a wallet for my wife for her birthday. I was hoping to have a tree themed wallet. I attached some pictures of some fall trees to give you some ideas. Her name is Violet and she loves the outdoors and most of the fall colors.
Of course I was up for the challenge! =)
So here are the pictures he sent me, along with some fabric I picked out especially for this project.
Here is the pieced top all sewn together & backed with a fleece like interfacing. I like a lot of loft, so the thicker the better!
10. the thickness of a fabric or of insulation used in a garment, as a down-filled jacket.
and this is the "behind the scenes" look! There is a lot of stitching goin' on here. =)
I mark my signature "V" on the inside with a blue water soluble pencil & stitch my little heart out!
And she's all done, made with attention to detail & lots of love!
Since this was a birthday present, I offered to include a matching hand made card. I used some fun animal print ribbon & a picture of one of the trees...add stitching & wha-lah, it's done!
As usual, I used recycled paper packaging & tied strips of fabric to the front and added a stamped sentiment to the tag.
I hope you are enjoying your custom wallet...I had a lot of fun making it.
